Verizon ships VZAccess for Windows Vista – PC 5740 updated

Verizon is making progress updating the drivers and VZAccess Manager software so that it is compatible with Windows Vista.  Take a look at, their official download site.  For those of you using the PC 5740 card like I am, you can download the current version of VZAccess Manager directly from  Keep in mind that this version and link are subject to change so it’s probably best to start at the main website. 

The software installed cleanly and so far I have not been able to reproduce the Blue Screen Of Death (BSOD) that was present in previous versions.  The repro I am talking about is a normal scenario.  Many times I forget I’m connected to the EVDO network via VZAccess Manager 5.x.  I’d hit my power button to shut down and BOOM, BSOD.  Nice.

Like I said, so far, so good.  I’m posting this via the wonders of the cell network.  Love it.

    I am a Sprint customer with a 5740. I used the VZAccess to get the 64Bit Vista Driver, and set the rest up in dialup networking.

    Works great. Thanks for the link, I knew Verizon has the drivers but I could not get past needing a Verizon number to access the download.
